Some Windows XP Users Can't Afford To Upgrade

PhreakinPenguin Re:Wrong platform (953 comments)

Sounds like someone has never had to use medical software. As much as the "zealots" would like to think, not everything is best run on OpenSource. It's not a troll, it's based on 15 years working with medical offices and doctors that don't have time to figure out how to get things to work. And yes, a lot of doctors offices don't have any support on staff or contract other than the EMR or EPM company they are dealing with.

Microsoft Admits To Being Hacked Too

PhreakinPenguin Ironic isn't it? (92 comments)

Kind of ironic that at a time when the federal government is wanting a bigger part of Fortune 500 technology departments, that some of the top companies in the world who've recently met at the White House, are now claiming they were hacked. With all these companies being hacked, our only hope is federal goverment stepping in and securing everything.

Scrabble Needs a New Scoring System

PhreakinPenguin Something else to do (202 comments)

I can almost say this with certainty that the guy figuring out Scrabble letter values would contribute to society far more doing something else with his time.

AMD Hires Bank To Explore Sale Options

PhreakinPenguin Bad move for any company (226 comments)

I can't see anyone touching them with a ten foot pole unless the price is REALLY beneficial. AMD was done for when they bought ATI. You knew they were desperate then and even more so now. I know a lot of geeks love AMD, but they will never beat Intel because of Intel's brand recognition and DEEP DEEP pockets. And besides, Intel is in bed so bad with companies like Microsoft and Dell then AMD stands no chance of gaining anything there either. I could see Microsoft buying them as a last ditch attempt at catching Apple but if they did, it would be the end of Ballmer and many executives at MS. If they thought the investor fallout has been bad from the Surface debacle, this will be a hundred fold.

Photo Tour of Google's Data Centers

PhreakinPenguin Re:And it's all for ads (88 comments)

Except they offer more than search and ads. TOns of other services make up their server farms. Especially their new tech like fiber to homes and TV

Microsoft's Adaptive Touchscreen Keyboard

PhreakinPenguin Wow, Partisanship at it's finest (77 comments)

Somehow I think if this were released by someone more open source friendly, everyone here would be basking in how awesome it is. But since it's put out my Microsoft, everyone shits all over it. Way to never let me down Slashdot.

Google Launches Public DNS Resolver

PhreakinPenguin Re:OpenDNS is faster (540 comments)

Give it a few days. I somehow doubt OpenDNS would take the load that Google's servers are getting right now. If you listen carefully you can hear the sound of millions of geeks crushing the servers there so they can jump on Slashdot and complain about something.

Why the FBI Director Doesn't Bank Online

PhreakinPenguin Re:From the wikipedia entry on Mueller (360 comments)

No the main reason Scottish courts released him is because the British PM "recommended" it in order to secure a HUGE drilling contract in Libya that was awarded shortly after his release.
